Corwin Davis of Bellevue, Michigan was an old-style truck farmer. He sold sweetcorn, melons, squash, nuts...and "Indian Corn".
He sold directly to customers so he had constant and concrete feedback about what his customers found appealing.
Corwin said that the "magic" mix for Indian Corn, now known by the more politically correct term of "Ornamental Maize" was between 60%-and-80% yellow kernels followed by white, red and blue in decreasing amounts.
For example, 70% yellow, 15% white, 10% red and 5% blue would meet his formula.
